The new Range Rover Evoque has been an award magnet ever since it was introduced, snatching 23 international awards. The latest comes from UK’s Stuff Magazine and it’s a biggie: Car of the Year 2011.
There are many many interesting things about the Evoque, from the fact that it was designed, at least in name, by Victoria Beckham, to its awesome looks and great number of features. So everyone with every perception will find something fascinating about this car. And at the end of the day, it’s a Range Rover. One of the coolest brands in the auto world.
In this case, the judges were impressed by the car’s novel features such as Terrain Response providing all weather, all surface capability and Adaptive Dynamics with Magnaride giving an ever compliant ride, Land Rover’s cutting edge Dual Screen technology permitting the driver and passenger to see two different images on the same screen at the same time, and it’s banging 825W Meridian audio system.
Speaking at the award ceremony, Stuff Magazine Editor, Will Findlater, said: “For combining the off-road capabilities of a Range Rover and leading technology with the desirability of a Blade Runner space car, the Range Rover Evoque just had to win it for us.”
Land Rover Design Studio Director, David Saddington collected the award and said: “The Stuff Gadget Award means a lot to us at Land Rover and it is fantastic to win Stuff Magazine’s inaugural Car of the Year Award. I am really happy to pick it up on behalf of the entire Land Rover team who put so much hard work into the design and engineering – it is great to be recognised for leading edge and innovative technology wrapped in such a fantastic design.”
